Björk’s app-oriented album Biophilia is due October 10th, but you can stream it now over at NPR. So far we’ve already heard album tracks ‘Cosmonogy’ and ‘Virus’ as well as seen videos for ‘Crystalline’ and ‘Moon’. Putting aside the potentially gimmicky iPad app aspect of the album (which you can read all about here), on first listen Biophilia is an instant improvement on her middling 2007 album Volta. As with anything from Björk, Biophilia is challenging, genre-bending, globe-spanning and forward-thinking music which will take many listens to fully appreciate.
